When the horn sounded to signify the end of Steelers practice, 18-year old Dakota Pettus had no idea what he was in store for.
Within minutes of the team huddling together to end practice, they were huddled around him, giving him high fives, signing autographs and posing for pictures.
“It’s been an amazing day. It’s really a dream come true.”
That dream came true for Pettus thanks to the Steelers and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and for him the highlight of course was meeting his three favorite players, Le’Veon Bell,
“I have been a big-time Steelers fan since I was little, since I can remember,” said Pettus, who has cystic fibrosis. “It’s been Steelers everything. My room is Steelers.
“It’s been a great experience. I can’t even put words to it. It’s been amazing.”
